Chappelle has a chef in Ohio that prepares amazing meals with marijuana and psychedelics for fellow comedians, according to Chris Rock.
If you build it, they will come…and trip. In response to the pandemic shutting down live comedy venues across the country, Dave Chappelle built his own stage on land he owns in Ohio. He invites famous comedians to fly in, tests them for COVID, and performs for a socially distanced audience.
It’s called “Chappelle Summer Camp.” But backstage, comedians like Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, and Michelle Wolf indulge in substances usually hidden from camp counselors.
“I was trying to be nice because your show’s on in the daytime,” Rock said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, “but we do lots of drugs. But not the hard stuff.”
“There’s lots of weed. There’s way more weed than anyone should ever,” Rock continued. “And there’s a lot of mushrooms. Dave’s got a weed/mushroom chef that prepares amazing meals with weed and mushrooms.”
Rock joked that visiting the farm and sipping some mushroom tea caused Tiffany Haddish to shave her head. “I know she likes to act like, ‘Oh, Common told me he loved me with no hair.’ No, it was the mushroom tea talking,” Rock said.
Haddish appeared on The Tonight Show and shared her side of what happened after consuming the mushroom tea.
“As Jon Hamm is talking, he started to look like Phylicia Rashād,” she told host Jimmy Fallon. “As I looked around, everybody started looking like Phylicia Rashād. I had to go to therapy… I think it’s because I really want Phylicia Rashād to be my momma. I’m going to have to write a movie and cast her in it to be my mom, that’s what I gather from that.”

With all these comedians talking publicly about these mushroom and weed parties, you might wonder where are the cops? Both substances are illegal in the state of Ohio. But local sheriff Gene Fischer didn’t make much of Rock’s comments.
“Chris Rock’s a comedian. Chris Rock is probably looking for jokes,” Fischer told a local news station. “People have been making jokes about marijuana and drugs for years. Hopefully that’s what he’s talking about.”
“It’s not raised to the level that we would go out in mass and try to make arrests,” he added. “To me these are just comments right now, until we prove otherwise.”
